Most problems surrounding Underfloor Heating and Carpet has been heat distribution, Heat-Pak solves this, by conducting the heat and giving an even distribution making it perfect for Carpet and Vinyl floors .
Some companies recommend using Plywood as a cheaper alternative, but Plywood is actually an insulator therefore preventing some of the heat from heating your floor. where Heat-Pak is a conductor of heat allowing the heat to be evenly distributed. Also Heat-Pak will not warp or twist like a grained Plywood.
Heat-Pak® has been designed to be a floating floor over underfloor heating in conjunction with floor coverings such as Amtico, Karndean and even Carpet to be fixed to.
Heat-Pak® provides a really smooth, stable surface to which most floor coverings can be bonded or fixed to, but especially suited to Amtico, Karndean and other vinyl products, this is because both of those floor types require a super smooth surface upon which to bond to.
The beauty of Heat-Pak® is that it eliminates any of the old problems that conventional electric underfloor heating system used pose to the installer.
This is because of its unique “Dry installation” method of installation, in days gone by if you wanted a heated Amtico or Karndean floor you would have had to use the undertile system such as cables and cable mats, then latex over, wait for the latex to dry, sand it down and do the final pour, to get a mirror like finish to bond the flooring to, then there was always the danger of cables popping up and being close to the surface and creating scorch marks on the flooring. This has all gone now and by using Heat-Pak® and the carbon heating film you won’t even get your hands mucky mixing dirty wet latex compound and even the most competent DIY’er could do it.
More importantly the thermal conductivity of the Heat-Pak® system is exceptionally high compared to other systems allowing heat to pass through the floor finish and into the room with no significant loss of efficiency.
Carpets can be used over Heat-Pak® but do need some special attention before deciding to purchase. Carpets need to have a tog value of 2.5 or less to be effective, and its the same for the underlay. The method of installation is the same as above
